Chapter
Part of the Agent-Based Social Systems book series (ABSS, volume 12)

Abstract

This article reviews the activities of Prof. Dr. Takao Terano’s laboratory at Tokyo Institute of Technology and briefly introduces several representative papers especially in social simulation literature. The social simulation studies belong to one of the two aspects, applications and fundamentals. The former include financial markets and systems, organizations, network, movement of people, and educational systems. The latter deal with large-scale simulations and real-time data aggregation.
